Re: Waitress Position

Dear Mr. Abraham:

I am responding to your job posting for a Waitress located on your website. With my hands-on experience in the food service industry and exceptional hospitality and customer service expertise, I am ready to contribute to Sandia Restaurant.

As you will note from the enclosed resume, I am skilled in greeting guests and assisting them with table selection, taking food and beverages orders, communicating the same to kitchen staff and returning to table quickly. Moreover, I have excellent knowledge of beverage handling and serving techniques, good mathematical ability to calculate cash and make the change, and able to keep service area clean and organized.

Throughout my career, I have maintained the highest customer service standards. At my previous workplace, I effectively kept sales records and collected payment, which reduced discrepancies by 30% and increased revenue by $7000 per month.

I would like to meet with you at your earliest convenience to discuss my candidacy in detail. To follow-up and set up a meeting date and time, I’ll contact your office next week. In the interim, I can be reached at (009) 987-2045.

Thank you very much for your time and consideration. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
